Stop-motion animation brings’ inappropriate bands’ to live.

Stop-motion animation is the process by which physical objects are processed by frame by frame to produce the motion illusion. It is one of the oldest movie technologies, but it is used in a new movie called “pirates”! A bad band.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Now, stop motion animation – in which the physical object is manipulated frame by frame to give the illusion of motion – one of the oldest cinematic techniques. Today it is using a book called “pirates! A completely new movie.

 

Movie critic Kenneth Turan has our comments.

KENNETH TURAN: it’s not often mentioned in history books, but queen Victoria can’t stand pirates. In fact, the word “I hate the pirate” was apparently engraved on the crown. You can check it out.

Well, actually, you can’t – because the wacky characters at Aardman animation have made it a key plot point for this clever pirate business.

Hug grant :(as a pirate captain) I’m a pirate captain. I’m here for your gold.

TURAN: the hero of the story is the pirate captain, wonderfully expressed by Hugh grant – perhaps is not the most sharp sailing the Caribbean, but his hand is very like a cheerful type, and vice versa.

GRANT :(as a pirate captain) some of you are as ugly as sea cucumbers – you’ll run away from it. Some of you are more like a chair or a coat hanger than a pirate. And some of you are just fish in my hat. But you’re still the best crew captain ever hoped for.

TURAN: the pirate captain had only one fault in his life: he had never won an annual pirate honor. When he met his main competitor, his confidence was shattered.

Unknown actor :(as a character) Cutlass Liz!

SALMA HAYEK :(like Cutlass Liz) you might be wondering if I’m still as beautiful and deadly as I am. All right, I.

TURAN: the captain devoted himself to the fight against depression, but he encountered a string of bad luck – when he caught a young scientist named Charles Darwin, his bad luck became worse. This led to the London trip and all sorts of crazy things, including the encounter with queen Victoria herself.

Peter Lord directs the “pirates”, and a few years ago he introduced this delightful “chicken run” into his collaboration. “Pirates” create a sense of pleasure that is made by hand rather than by machine. The film was so low-tech that the captain met his opponent’s scene for 18 months, but it was high enough to use 3D technology to enhance the experience. If we live in the golden age of animation – and we – adman’s people are a key reason.
